Gracedale Public School's Mission Statement

Gracedale Public School is located in a neighbourhood that borders on the Humber River as it crosses Islington and Finch Avenues. Opened in 1964, Gracedale P.S. currently serves its local community, as well as the former local school communities of Whitfield P.S. and Bluehaven P.S. There are approximately 550 students from J.K. to Grade 5, representing 42 countries around the world and over 25 languages at our school. About 80% of our children were born in Canada. Gracedale P.S. offers space and resources for both after-school recreation and regular day school programs which reflect community and curriculum needs.


We are pleased to announce that as of September 2023, Gracedale will be starting a French Immersion program for the JK year.  Every year we will continue to add another year till we have reached Grade 5.

We have increased access to Wifi and are purchasing new computers, digital projectors, mini iPads and laptops for technology carts which students can access.  Our teachers are engaged in professional development to integrate technology into their classrooms. Our teachers are using Smart Boards, Promethean Boards, Laptops and iPads to deliver their lessons.  Our students use technology as a tool to increase their learning.
